About Spring Greens
Spring Greens is DMARC’s signature fundraising event featuring some of the area’s best food and beverage purveyors! There, you will sample and sip small bites and beverages “freshened” for spring season. You’ll also enjoy an auction, raffle and entertainment.
The event features a patron pre-tasting beginning at 4:30 pm and a general tasting kicking off at 5:00 pm.

The event’s goal is to raise $100,000 for DMARC and its mission and to attract over 300 attendees sampling 30 (or more!) upscale food and beverage vendors. In its inaugural year, DMARC raised over $88,000 and had nearly 200 attendees.

Why Spring Greens?
Your support of SPRING GREENS will help close the gap between hunger and food security in Greater Des Moines! Your gift will nourish the mind, body, and soul of those in need, contributing toward the educational achievement, public health, economic productivity, and overall quality of life.
